The following commit is available in the 'xaa' branch of
git://people.freedesktop.org/~daniels/xserver - I think the commit
message explains it fairly well.

I've got patches to intel, ati, mach64 and mga to fix their builds in
the absence of XAA; a lot of other drivers[0] still depend on XAA,
however.  Given that the drivers right now are broken, I'm proposing to
leave this patch until 1.13, so we at least have some time to fix the
drivers and get them deployed.

    Remove XAA
    It hasn't worked for over four years.  No-one's even come close to
    fixing it.

I swear this is my last semi-troll-but-actually-serious commit.
